Playing with Borders

Nine Patch  (See also: 23 January 2010)

This quilt top was designed using a Nine Patch block and an I-don't-know-what-to-call-it block.

I need to discover a border for it.

What if I start by extending the background?  I can do this by adding Nine Patch blocks all around the outside.

The black pattern no longer feels cramped.

What if I change some of the light green blocks to black?  The result is a dotted line on all four sides.

I've got my border and I'm happy.
